In the spirit of the end of the month, I submit this last entry to my Five Day Black and White Photography Challenge. I have to thank my friend, Andy Crawford for the challenge, as it helped me to revisit some images and look at them in a different light. This scene at Glenwood Cemetery in Houston was actually taking during the afternoon, but just seemed perfect for a night time effect. Glenwood was the  first cemetery in Houston to be professionally designed and opened in 1871.

Vargo’s, a Houston restaurant, was famous for its scenic, lake-front property featuring a white gazebo where many a couple has said “I do.” The wooded site was also known for the peacocks and the wooded pathways were visitors would stroll after dinner. I proposed to my wife there a few years back (okay, more than a few) and have enjoyed several fine meals there since. Today, the restaurant is gone, but the memories for many people live on.

In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve posted a few black and white photos this week. You can blame my friend Andy Crawford for that. Andy is a photographer that joined us in New Orleans last spring and is just a super guy. Earlier this week, he challenged me to a Five Day Black-and-White Photo Challenge. I’m not the biggest black-and-white photographer, so I had to come up with a couple of examples that might work. So for day three, I present this image of some street performers in the Bourbon Street area of the French Quarter in New Orleans. These young guys put on quite a show, and didn’t blink an eye when our group of photographers swarmed all around their “stage.”

What use to be socially acceptable years ago, is not any more. Watch any old black and white movie and you most likely will see someone lighting up with a smoke in one hand with an adult beverage in the other. These days, you might still find it, but most likely in an establishment just for that purpose. Some would state though that a bad habit is only bad if taken to extreme, so proceed with caution. This was taken at Lafitte’s Blacksmith Shop in the French Quarter in New Orleans.

Stepping Up in Downtown Houstonhttp://timstanleyphotography.com/2014/10/stepping-up-in-downtown-houston/ http://timstanleyphotography.com/2014/10/stepping-up-in-downtown-houston/#comments Mon, 20 Oct 2014 06:00:46 +0000 http://timstanleyphotography.com/?p=5859 It was almost a year ago when I went walking through Sam Houston Park, by downtown Houston. I liked the lines of these stairs as if they were leading up to a path towards downtown.

We’ve all heard the phrase about making lemonade when life gives you lemons. So when you go to the zoo and the animals are all sleeping or hiding, then you make lemonade. You enjoy the other surroundings, such as the beautiful flowers and plants. These fall flowers were found at the Houston Zoo in early October.

I thought the cooler temperatures might have the animals moving about, but not on this afternoon. So instead, I directed the camera in the other direction for a peek at the colorful petals of these flowers.

As I thought of a title for this post, I realized I should save it for December 31. These past several months have been full of so many activities and running around, that taking time out for a photo has been a luxury. When I do, it might just be my iPhone.

Every pretty sunset I’ve seen recently has been from my car as I run another errand for my kids. But that’s okay. I value my family time first and will put that before a photo opportunity if need be. Of course, I try to combine the two when possible.  But if I’m not posting as much as I use to, please be patient. As kids grow up and venture out on their own, my time will open up again. And so will my camera bag.

A great thing about taking photos late at night (or early in the morning) is you can go stand in places you can not normally go during the day. Not because you get secret access to places, but usually more simple things, like no traffic allows you to stand in the street. Late at night in the Texas Medical Center in Houston, we were able to take a closer look at the Metro tracks that split Fannin St. close to Texas Children’s Hospital – Pavilion for Women.

Between the many connecting walkways, train and streets, getting around the Medical Center could require a Google Maps app.

The cooler weather of fall brings lots of car shows in our area. Every weekend, you can find one to go and see some great example of vintage classics or horsepower overload in custom street rods.  Last weekend, Old Town Spring, in Spring, TX, hosted an antique show that had some of the finest cars I’ve seen in a long time. This beautiful Ford coupe sits in front of Wunsche Bros. Cafe. This is a great place for a genuine, chicken fried steak and on a fall weekend, a great view out the window.
